The daughters of this millionaire will have to play by these rules if they want their $27million inheritance
One would think that when you Dad is a multi-millionaire that your future would be devoid of money troubles. Not so for these girls!
New Yorker, Maurice Laboz died earlier this year aged 77. He was mourned by his two daughters, Marlena, 21 and Victoria, 17. These lucky ladies will each inherit about $13 million when they are aged 35. But in an effort to ensure his daughters stay on the "right track" the businessman has allowed his girls to inherit more money earlier, if they follow some rules and make certain life choices.
 
Marlena will inherit about $687,000 for getting married, but only if her husband signs a stringent prenup. She'll also gain an extra $1 million if she graduates “from an accredited university” but not before writing, “100 words or less describing what she intends to do with the funds.” An appointed trustee by her father will oversee the 100 word essay and determine whether she will be awarded the graduation money.
 
If the girls are earning respectable salaries before 2020 they can expect the annual income stated on their federal tax forms, to triple.
 
Throwing back to 1950's values, they will be rewarded for being stay at home mums – earning an additional 3% of the value of their inheritance to be paid out on the first day of every year. 
 
But,  Victoria and Marlena can forget about it if they dare have children outside of wedlock.
 
The girl’s mother Ewa, 58 who was in the middle of divorcing their late father (!) will inherit nothing unless one of their girls need to be a caregiver to their ailing mum – in which case the girls will receive the same amount they would if they were housewives.
 
The remainder of Maurice’s reported $50 million fortune will be donated to charities, including The Michael J Fox Foundation and Meals on Wheels.
